The Connect - Focus - Grow Program was developed as part of the National Mentoring Project, a pilot project managed by MENTOR National in partnership with the psychologists and anthropologists from universities across the country.
Connect - Focus - Grow is a training curriculum that employs a three-pronged approach – to equip mentors with the knowledge and skills to effectively support personal growth by understanding themselves, their potential skills and choosing the right career direction for young people; instructing supervisors on how to manage with a mentoring mindset and how to guide young people towards engaging and leveraging mentoring opportunities while, at the same time, meeting their goals.
The goal of Connect - Focus - Grow is to create a mentoring mindset for industry professionals to increase positive outcomes for youth and jobseekers who can find the right career and shape their future.
This training serves:
Young people (form 20 - 35 years old) who are entering or preparing to enter the workforce
Supervisors of youth employees
Community-based and employee mentors of youth
